As a quick recap, VoLTE is using LTE or 4G connectivity to transmit voice calls unlike the current practice where calls go through 2G or 3G mobile networks. To do this, a strong and reliable internet connection is needed.

“We are excited to be the first network in the country to successfully use VoLTE, because this technology holds so much promise in terms of improving the quality of mobile service available to our customers. Voice will always be an important mobile application, and VoLTE is the platform of the future which will provide the best customer experience when it comes to voice communications,” said Joachim Horn, chief technology and information advisor at PLDT and Smart. 

Fortunately, Smart have already completed a number of key improvement projects recently to make this possible. In the near future, let's expect VoLTE to be fully operational nationwide.

Sean Gowran, Head of Ericsson Philippines and Pacific Islands, says: “This partnership with Smart in making the first live VoLTE capability available in the Philippines helps reinforce Smart’s technology leadership in mobile communications and its commitment to bring the best customer experience to its subscribers in the country. With the introduction of VoLTE, Smart will ensure and further enhance voice quality, while also enabling a broader range of communication capabilities.”
